INFORMATION
karenina is a poet who believes poetry is the DNA of our souls. Throughout the ages poets have been creating a unique perspective of the world; from historical events to the most intimate moments of human interaction. Writing is a process much like birth! Joyful, laborious,

    Sandra Barlow: I just heard that you have been unwell, or had an injury, or just had an operation. I'm only guessing from a poem I read that was a tribute to you. Someone loves you very much. I do hope all is better now, or at least going to be better.
